I have 2 VMware ESxi servers and a few virual boxes.  I want to add a user with less than admin permissions. This user needs to be able for now to configure a VMserver and reboot it.  eventually it will just need reboot permissions.  There are read-only and administrator.  If I grant read-only will the user still be able to configure the server and reboot the machine?

Yes, you can define it in roles on permissions tab. create a new role and select VM level activities allowed.

No read only user can only view top level, cant even see VM edit level features.

OK then the only other choice is administrator. Its not letting me define a new group  Is there a way to create a new permission?  I'm user the VShhere Client.
